Goblin ( The Lonely and Great God ) is one of my favorite Korean drama. It is a tv series starring Gong Yoo, Kim Go-eun, Lee Dong-wook, Yoo In-na, and Yook Sung-jae.
Kim Shin (Gong Yoo) is a goblin and protector of souls. He is the landlord of the grim reaper (Lee Dong-wook), who is in charge of taking deceased souls. Wanting to end his immortal life, Shin has been looking for his human bride, the only person who can end his life. Meanwhile, Ji Eun-tak (Kim Go-eun) is a high school student who remains optimistic despite the tragedies and difficulties she has experienced in her life. She summons the goblin by chance, and through various encounters, ends up falling in love with him. Sunny (Yoo In-na) is a chicken restaurant owner, whose beauty is undeniable. These four characters’ lives took a series of twists and turns when they intertwined. (https://en.wikipedia.org)
Although the drama was over, that Goblin vibe is still there. That resulted to a lot of people including me, wanting to see or visit some of it’s filming locations.
Familiar with this scene? This is where Kim Shin seeing Grim Reaper’s tea room through the wall.
